The presidential campaign organisation of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has replied the federal government over the allegation against its party's presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, saying that the former vice president has nothing to do with the issues leading to the collapse of Bank PHB.
Legit.ng reports that the PPCO director of media and publicity, Kola Ologbondiyan, said this at a news conference on Friday, January 18, in Abuja.
Ologbondiyan said that the allegation was a plot to fabricate lies, falsehood and frame up Atiku, whom he claimed was already coasting to victory in the February 16 presidential election.
“The PPCO makes bold to state that Atiku has nothing to do with the alleged issues leading to the collapse of Bank PHB.
“Atiku is an honest and hard working Nigerian who has no skeleton of any sort in his cupboard. The world already knows that this is an attempt to mudsling our presidential candidate,” he said.
Ologbondiyan said that Nigerians could see through those lies, fabrications and frustration and the scheme against Atiku, which he said were already dead on arrival.
“The PDP presidential candidate, our great party and indeed all Nigerians, who have already reached a national consensus to vote-in Atiku will not be distracted by this unfounded allegation,” he said. (NAN)
